Christ calls young people to respond with audacity and generosity, Spanish bishop says

.- Bishop Amadeo Rodriguez of Plasencia in Spain called on priests and the faithful to support the local seminary, which is “the heart of the Diocese” and “is always open to the chosen of the Lord.”

“I invite the entire diocesan community to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life, following the direction of the Teacher, who encourages us to pray to the Lord of the harvest for workers,” the bishop said in a letter re-printed by Ecclesia Digital.

In his letter, Bishop Rodriguez recalled the recent visit to Rome by a delegation from the diocese.  “The experience was so wonderful, and I need to share it with all of you,” he said.

Later he called for support for the local seminary, especially from priests.  “I also invite parents to appreciate what the seminary offers to young people.  I can assure you that your children’s choice to follow Jesus Christ in fidelity is an excellent choice,” he told them.
